    When you title your piece "Clinton supporters have nothing to complain about in Biden nomination", that suggests that Clinton supporters ARE complaining.

    Silly rebuttal that tries to ignore the obvious.

    This is not a sig-line.

      It describes what is being argued: that Clinton advocated for experience and expertise, and Biden has plenty of it.

      You're projecting.

      Oh, and if you turn on the news, you'll see that the media already is lining up Clinton supporters who'll complain about Biden.

        Obama supporters have nothing to complain about in Biden nomination

        Now think about it - don't just jump to your own defense. Really consider what this says to a normal reader (not the author).

        It says that Obama supporters are, or likely will be, complaining.

        Now it could be unintentional... but the stage is set, and in your case the rest of your article more-or-less dismissed that possibility.

        You really were saying that Clinton supporters - and unqualified, that means most or all 18 million Clinton supporters - are complaining now, or are likely to be complaining, about the excellent choice of Joe Biden for VP candidate.

        So I find your talk of "projecting" applies better to you than to me.

        This is not a sig-line.
